STATE STREET THEATRE OF CARDBOARDIA
Cardboardia Parade/Carnival
During the festival, we are opening the preparation area for the parade/carnival. It usually consists of a creative workshop for creating masks/costumes, game and photo zones with attractions and large-scale scenery, a workshop for movement/dance/music.

The final procession is attended together by artists, the audience, often joined by local theaters, music groups.

The Cardboardia venue for the preparation for the carnival / parade can start working and be open to the audience a week/10 days before the start of the festival / city holiday.

We regularly organize large-scale parades both in Russia and abroad, attracting a large number of people to participate. Up to 5,000 people took part in the Cardboardia Parades at one time.

In advance, we prepare costumes, masks, props, banners, as well as giant platforms and oversized objects on wheels. We like to use heavy machinery (lifts, excavators, tractors, trucks, etc.).

We organize workshops. During the week before the event, we can conduct an internship, in which everyone can participate. Just a few hours before the final action, we open the available workshops for creating costumes and masks.

We invite artists. Our parades are attended by artists, stilt walkers, and musicians.
We attract viewers to participate. We are blurring the line between the author and the viewer, everyone can become a part of the event and immerse themselves in what is happening to the extent that they want.

INTERESTING
The first official parade of Cardboardia
It was held at the festival "Bright People" in Moscow in Gorky Park. It was the Day of the Tyrant's Giant Creatures, and the theme was seaworld. We invented and created a story about a fisherman catching a giant shark and being chased by a whale. In the process, everyone was swallowed up by the water. During the week, 3 giant mobile designs and about 100 costumes and masks were created with the participation of the audience. Several hundred people took part in the parade.
We organize parades in Russia and abroad
For visitors of festivals, representatives of local communities, participants of team building and corporate events. Taiwan, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Poland, and other countries.
Laboratories of Street Performance and Snakes Gorynych
For the preparation of parades, we organize internships in the direction of production, performance and design. For example, this is how we prepared for a large-scale parade at the festival " This is Carnival!" in the park "Kudykina Gora", which was attended by several thousand people.
We were Alchemists
Parade at the Polytech Festival, Moscow, 2017. In Gorky Park, as part of the Polytech festival, we opened an Alchemical Laboratory and organized a march through the park, which was attended by about 5,000 people
We organized a procession of trees in Voronezh
International Platonov Festival, Voronezh, 2014. We created a large mobile object, costumes and participated in the Street Theater parade, and at the end of the parade we organized a large-scale game in the square in front of the theater.
We opened a Film Studio for 5 days at Sziget Festival, Hungary
Sziget Festival, Hungary. We opened the Cardboardia Film Studio at the festival and together with the guests of the festival we shot films of different genres, and then we lined up in a big cinematic parade. During the 5 days of the festival, we held 5 parades, with a total number of participants of about 10,000 people.
We drove a cardboard tram In the Moscow centre
Bright People, Moscow, 2013. In the center of Moscow (Kuznetsky Most Street, Neglinnaya), there was a parade of Cardboardia. It was a presentation of the second version of the Car Shop. The theme of the parade was transport, we made cars, buses and other vehicles of different sizes, costumes for participating in the parade and mobile objects.
In 2013, in Taiwan, we organized a large-scale parade lasting 5 hours
In 2013, in Taiwan, we organized a large-scale parade lasting 5 hours. In advance, during the internship, together with local residents, we made more than 2,000 costumes and 5 giant mobile objects. The curators of the internship and the local residents did not speak the same language, so the only channel of communication was the universal language of creativity. The finale was a long parade filled with various events and ended with a stage performance with the participation of musicians.
In 2016, we became part of the Handmade Parade in Hebden Bridge, UK
In 2016, we became part of the Handmade Parade in Hebden Bridge (UK). Together with the leading Handmade Parade artists, local residents and our team of interns, we prepared costumes, built objects and tested new forms of communication with the audience. Six months before the event, the town of Hebden Bridge experienced a major flood, which caused damage, but also in a sense united the community in the fight against the consequences, so the parade was dedicated to this natural and social phenomenon. We proposed not only to show the dirt that comes from the heavens and the earth, but also the kind of dirt that people's minds and lives produce. Guided by this idea, we created a Mobile City with a central object in the form of a Giant Toilet, with polluting pipes, chimneys, cars and even a group of bureaucrats-in general, everything that makes our life so full of ... sewage. As a response to this first city, we proposed a second-a Mobile Utopia City built around a Tree with a vacuum cleaner connected to it, surrounded by robot gardeners and struggling to protect the city's ecology from human bureaucrats.
